If you're driving, DON'T DRINK,
and if you're drinking, DON'T DRIVE.

The gene pool has thinned out enough...

The best of everything to you and yours in the New Year.
Play hard and play safe.

Bird is the word...

Researchers have discovered that Urban-based birds 'learn to rap'. (Hence the term: "FLY" we wonder?)

All puns aside, the best part of the article has got to be this: "There are an estimated 1.7 million great tit pairs in the UK" - nice.

JaGoFF Featured on C-Net !!

Editor's Review:

Impossibly deep funk bass lines, crazy-eyed crew sing-alongs and a gritty bent put the Chi-town squad in post-Parliament territory. But this isn't just the orthodox funk of George Clinton's famed outfit. Between its rich harmonies and lyrical edge, it is everything from gospel to rap.

(Funk yeah!)

James Brown has died at the age of 73

James Brown has died at the age of 73. There can be nothing more said than, James Brown was and always will be the funk - period, point blank. There is no one that has influenced modern music more than he had. We are grateful that we had the chance to catch him live and were simply blown away by his energy. No one worked it any harder and he worked it until the end. That is all any of us can hope for. Thanks for the music, the influence and God bless you, James.

On this Christmas, heaven just got alot funkier.

Robo-rights and other delights...

A new study warns that robots could sue for their rights if they were denied to them.

Hopefully all humans will get their rights first.

Nice & Naughty!!

We just posted the mega-jammy jam, Baby FaTT, the perfect soundtrack while you are making your holiday lists. Shake what your mama gave ya, until you brake what your mama gave ya. Yeah.


Need a holiday gift idea? How about a JaGoFF CD, , for that rump shakin' friend, family member, or your own funky self? Beside the fact that you will be getting some of the funkiest thang out there (URB gave it a 4 Star review), you will be supporting diehard and fiercely independent artists, working hard to keep it really real. If you don't know already, JaGoFF is 100 percent DIY and have refused many a record deal, because a record deal is not a "deal" at all. We prefer to keep things, as they were meant to be, directly from us to you. No middleman. No BS. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

The Record Industry

So we hit the streets, in JaGoFF anti-focus group style, armed with nothing more than a microphone and a single question, which was posed to the average "man/woman in the street" (ie. non-musician). The question? "What do you think about the record industry?" To our suprise and astonishment, their reaction was immediate, there is not one person that did not have a strong, unfavorable opinion.

You can hear the results on our latest track, entitled "The Record Industry" (naturally). It is going to be on our upcoming album (due out in 2007) and is at the rough demo stage at this point, but overall, you get the idea. Ahhh, too much fun.

Trustworthy, loyal, obedient and brainwashed

Long known for honesty, integrity , morality and deep family values, our friends in the entertainment industry are bankrolling a campaign with the Boy Scouts.

"Boy Scouts in the Los Angeles area will now be able to earn an activity patch for learning about the evils of downloading pirated movies and music ... The patch shows a film reel, a music CD and the international copyright symbol, a "C" enclosed in a circle."

You've got be kidding!

After historically screwing artists, suing and infringing on the rights of everyday consumers, radio payola and stifling technolgies that enable both artist and fan....

now, the record industry wants a f-ing tax break. ha ha ha.

A record deal is anything but.

"By corrupting the language, the people who wield power are able to fool the others about their activities and evade responsibility and accountability, Cato's Timothy Lynch argues in his polemic against doublespeak, an outgrowth of the doublethink and newspeak of George Orwell's 1984"
